    Please accept my condolences during this time of distress. While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Everett, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. While doing so, take comfort in knowing that just as you have memories, our creator, almighty God remembers as well. Through Jesus, among many witnesses, he has demonstrated that he has the ability to restore perfect life on earth to those in his memory. Therefore, you can further appreciate how the Bible stresses this fact as you view the video link:
